About Cayla Rivas

Cayla Rivas, ‘18, passionately pursues motorcycle racing, art, and photography as all three exhibit an explosive intimacy that reveals her persona. As a photojournalist on The Feather for two years, she captures the heartbeat of the community. Her organic art showcases beauty in the human form. In her high school career, she received the CSPA Gold Crown award, two All American titles as a cheerleader and broke twelve land speed records through the AMA and SCTA racing divisions. Thanks to Feather advisers, Cayla advanced in photojournalistic skills and found a love for capturing people’s raw emotions through her lens. Unveiling a moment in time otherwise unseen by the rest of the world motivates her pursuit of excellence. She hopes to attend the Academy of Art University in San Francisco, and eventually become a known photographer traveling for National Geographic magazine.

Description: This portrait is entirely made from colored pencils, with a new technique I learned from artist Lisa Lachri. Using odorless mineral spirits or Gamsol, I blended out the pigment to make a smoother finish. I based this portrait off of a picture of me, creating the image with a variety of browns, tans and pinks.

Description: Junior James White created this drawing using a pencil and eraser, with a tortillon to shade. Assigned by art teacher, Vickey Belmont, he was challenged with the task of drawing himself. White based the image off of a photo of himself. In his first year of art, he struggles with making his art to scale and making sure each piece is proportioned correctly.
